Shop­ping Sug­ges­tions

Excelencias from the Caribbean & the Americas - - Eastern Cuba -

This is a na­ture-laden re­gion fea­tur­ing top-qual­ity hand­crafts made of fibers, wood, seashells and other el­e­ments. Ma­jor ho­tels usu­ally re­serve some space of their own for lo­cal ar­ti­sans to show­case and sell their prod­ucts. All main cities have small mar­ket­places that open daily with sales of crafts and other sim­i­lar items. We sug­gest you to buy wood­carv­ings, bracelets, neck­laces, creels, hats, co­conut vases and many oth­ers. Col­or­ful and cre­ative naïf paint­ing is vir­tu­ally ev­ery­where. East­ern Cuba is known for its top-class mu­si­cal in­stru­ments, like claves, mara­cas, graters, drums and tum­bado­ras, as well as its ex­cel­lent rum, cof­fee and tra­di­tional mu­sic
